Lack of Qualified Human Resources in El Salvador
A lack of specialist professionals and technicians combined with poor levels of English is making the country less competetive.
Thursday, August 12, 2010
Data analyzed from the latest Job Fair organized by El Salvador's Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Ministry for Employment, indicate that attendees qualifications, technical understanding and level of English were often below that sought by hiring companies.
In Costa Rica there are currently more than 400 people employed in this sector, with a reported unmet demand for another 3000.
Salvadoran firms require skilled labor, engineers and bilingual accounting professionals.
More professionals and technicians are needed to meet demand for specialists with the opening of the country's mobile telephony sector.
Facing a lack of specialized technicians, representatives from private companies are motivating students to train in technical careers and foster the development of new specialties.
